Developer plans up to 200 new homes in Fife village

PersimmonPersimmon Homes is in talks over a potential project to deliver up to 200 new houses in Wormit.

The firm is in discussions with Fife Council over the proposed development on the southern edge of the village.

Iain Innes, managing director for Persimmon Homes North Scotland, told the Evening Telegraph: “We are at a pre-application stage for our new proposed development in Wormit, which has been allocated as a housing site by Fife Council. The site will contain a range of homes to suit all families and there will also be a substantial affordable housing provision.

“Residents’ views are important to us and they will be considered fully prior to the application submission, which will be finalised in the near future.”

Kevin Treadwell, the council’s planning lead officer, said: “The site is allocated in the Local Plan and emerging Local Development Plan for housing. We continue to work with developers to take plans forward for housing sites forward across Fife.”

Local councillor Tim Brett said between 150 and 200 homes could be built on the site.

He added: “It’s in the very early stages and I’ll keep a close eye as it develops.

“I will be pressing to ensure residents’ views are heard.”
